Christmas Gift Box

I thought I had already shared this, but apparently not! I made this box with the Gift Box Punch Board.  We have used so many of these little boxes this Christmas gift season! This size will hold a gift card, but what I mainly use them for is giving jewelry!

If it looks confusing, don't worry. It's easy! There is a video to watch if written instructions aren't your thing.

The board has the instructions right on it, along with measurements for many sizes of boxes. After I cut my cardstock to 8 x 8, I used the Stripes Mask and Real Red ink to sponge on the pattern. I think it makes the box extra cute! The Punch Board is made with a great little "clasp" punch built right in, to make your flaps all secure.

The tag (you know I love tags!) is made with a piece of Trim the Tree DSP Stack paper, the stamp set Merry Everything, and the new Note Tag Punch. Baked Brown Sugar Thick Twine adds a nice little accent.

Snowflake Joy

Good old gate-fold card. Sometimes I forget the old favorites, and then when I re-discover them, it makes me so happy! Endless Wishes and Seasonally Scattered went together perfectly on this snowflake card.

Cut the card base at 4 1/4 by 11, score at 5 1/2. Then trim 2 3/4 off the front flap. The other piece that layers on the right is cut at 3 x 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. Here's a picture of the card opened:

Paper: Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Ink: Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate, Versamark

Merry Everything Tags

One of the trends this year is the "double tag." At least, that's what I'm calling it. You have a decorative tag in front, and then add a more utilitarian tag behind it, for the pesky (and not beautiful) details. :-) We made this tag last week at my Club Appreciation Night. Super easy, and with just a bit of bling to make it special. The stamps are both from Merry Everything, and they match the new Note Tag punch. I used the Confetti Stars Punch (which I LOVE) on some scraps of Silver Glimmer Paper to add a little Christmas sparkle. Tied up with Silver 1/8" ribbon, this tag is ready to go!
